Not really about introversion, as the title suggests, but great tips nonetheless! I can't wait to put together my own post on public speaking one day.
Great advice on overcoming fears in presenting. Another way to make yourself more comfortable is to make presentation less of a speech and more of a conversation. Get your audience involved to take the pressure off of yourself. This also makes the audience much more attentive, responsive and much more likely to remember the presentation after they leave. No one wants to sit for an hour and be “talked at”. Ask questions, show examples on the fly, and try to get some rapport going with the group and things will run MUCH more smoothly.
